Does John still perform or create effects anymore?

How long has it been since "Twisted Sisters" was released?

I love John's stuff and was wondering *hoping* he would grace us with another fine book or effect someday.

I know he's a lawyer in Chicago *I think*, so maybe he's given up lecturing, creating, etc...?

I believe he is a full time lawyer but he still manages to get to FFFF.

Ok, I'm ignorant here. But what is "FFFF"?

It's an invite only close up convention, Fechters Finger Flinging Frolic.
Obie O Brian is the organiser I believe.

There were a couple of books around at one time containing tricks from the attendees, but they may be out of print now.

John Bannon is supposed to have a new book Cardzilla coming out this year.

Ah, Paul, that is wonderful news!

The thought of a new Bannon tome makes me all tingly!

Anyone have any details about it?

re;
"Will it be mostly cards as in his other books?"

With a title like "Cardzilla" I would think so, lol.

A play on Godzilla, the title leads one to believe
a) It is all cards.
b) Like Godzilla it is going to be big.
c) It might have a green cover?

Maybe it will arrive in time for Christmas.

Green would be fun! Hopefully a bright *phosphorescent* green so that it'll sell well and encourage John to continue publishing all those wonderful routines. Smile

Hey, I found some updated information on Bannons new book over at the Genii forums!

I don't know how accurate it is, but it sounds pretty good. Take a listen.

Quote:
Some of you might find of interest that last week I spent
quality time with John Bannon while he was in Los Angeles on business.
John, an old DC buddy, continues to spend too much time practicing law
but says he is almost finished with his latest book (tentatively titled
"Dear Mr. Fantasy"). He showed me an item from the book and
although I had to promise to keep it tight, I am allowed to report that
it kicked my butt and is powerfully commercial. I can also report that
about a year ago I saw John do a forthcoming card routine for laymen at
the Magic Castle while we were hanging out, and it got a mind-blowing
response from two guys who came across as "been there, done that" urbane
businessmen. John's best estimate is that the book will be out by early next year.


I guess "Cardzilla" has morphed into something else...
